Amazing penguins!

This is a major breakthrough in penguin research. I would like to give the BBC full credit for this amazing video! This evidence destroys all previous thoughts about the capabilities of these incredible birds. Now we find they have more in common with most bird species we know and love in our own areas. It is surprising that no one noticed this before, but I am glad they acknowledge this newly discovered behavior.


By the way, belated April fool!

Couldn't help but wonder what the toucan was thinking.

The BBC is just so brilliant at finding wildlife in unexpected new guises. Brilliant, worth every penny of the licence fee.

But where was David Attenborough?

What's all this talk about April fools? I've seen these guys fly with my own eyes. I was a mate on a sailboat rounding the horn. It was right after the captain gave me some lysurgic acid for a headache. An amazing sight.

Hah - let me tell you the story about the pigs I've seen flying!

Mr.C, I have seen ancient Egyptians dancing on the ceiling after ingesting that same remedy. Many decades ago, though.

That one had me dropping my jaw for a moment.

The BBC has to be credited with the most spectacular hoax of all time: the famous "Swiss Spaghetti Tree Harvest" aired in 1959. I think I recall seeing it when I was a kid on the Jack Parr show.

Robert, there are always new discoveries. You just never know! Your parents let you stay up for Jack Paar?? Cool!

Must give them an advantage when they run into those elusive yet tasty flying fish.
